  • A wah!? WAH!? But the American's said the only way to deal with a man with a knife is to shoot him a dozen times!

    Canada, making America look like shit since 1700.

    • @Gruxxan it was the yanks flamed you.
      fat fucking yanks sat on the net to fat to leave their trailers so become internet gangsters whilst munching sack after sack of cheetos & 100lbs of fatty cheese an hour.

    • @Gruxxan you can't compare these two different situations my friend.
      One is running away from the cops, with the back towards them.
      The other one has a knife in his hand, facing them, ready to attack and all ready within 6 feet.
      And please don't think the time square cops enjoy shooting some drugged out lunatic, with a criminal record you can wallpaper your house with.

    • @trollum - So the lesson you should learn from this, trollem, is that if you are ever unfortunate enough to find yourself in our country, then you should remember that our cops don't fuck around. Come at them, you will die.

  • Well done. Amazing that rubber bullet's & tazers failed to stop him. But a good old face plant did the trick :@)

    Anybody notice he looked rather much like a mideastern import? LOL

  • "It was a sword in a sheath" - well there you have it folks. It might as well have been a plastic light saber. Listen up, I'm sure you Canadians are just falling over each other to parade this as a "civilized" contrast to the Times Square take down, but let me tell you, if that sword had been unsheathed and he was waving it in the cop's faces and yelling "shoot me," they'd shoot him, just like any other armed cop in the world would. Nice try though.

      I too believe that, if it was not sheathed, he would have been shot because he could have slashed a number of people, including cops. Having it sheathed saved his life.

    • @CaptainsOrders Pretty much like the NYPD cops who allowed this fuckwit to back down 6 blocks of midtown Manhattan waving an 11-inch butcher's knife in people's faces. AND they tried to pepper spray him first. They only shot him when the pepper spray didn't work and he lunged at them with the knife. The two cops who fired the shots had over 20 years of service between them, and neither one of them had ever discharged their weapons on the job before. All of this completely negates any charge that More..

  • Good job! Props to those Canadian cops!

    Far too many on the NYPD are worthless turds, although the special units like the ESU (Emergency Service Unit) are excellent, top notch officers. As far as this weekend's shooting in Manhattan of the knife-wielding suspect, good riddance to a career criminal. He has finally been rehabilitated of his criminal ways.

    • @Sir Dingleberry
      He was arrested 7 times for smoking pot or getting caught with it. Sorry, that doesn't make him a criminal. That just makes him stupid. Sounds like they already had his number.

    • @chieb I did some checking and i learned that: "he had been arrested 10 times, seven for possession of marijuana. But in his most recent run-ins with the police, he had been violent, the police said. In November 2008, he was charged with criminal possession of a weapon for threatening to harm police officers with a screwdriver near Lincoln Center. He was sentenced to 40 days in jail for resisting arrest in that case.

      A month earlier, Mr. Kennedy had been taken to Bellevue Hospital for a ps More..

  • meh, the sword wasn't even out and he was trying to get away. I expect even Canadians would have shot him if the blade was out and he faced the cops and came at them.

    • @mericanborn There's the difference. If it was unsheathed it's a whole new ballgame and he wasn't lunging at them either. They used their best judgment and it came out well.

    • @drblodski The guy in New York who was recently stopped by deadly force wasn't running away, and he wasn't carrying a cheep sword in a sheath. He was high, armed with a bowie knife and swinging it at officers.

    • @Ramjet990 It wasn't a bowie knife it was a kitchen knife. Not that the end result would be any different.
